Ingredients

  • 2-3

    dashes bitters

  • 1 1/2

    ounce bacon-infused bourbon (recipe below)

  • 1/2

    ounce dry vermouth

  • 1/4

    ounce sweet vermouth

  • 1

    strip crisp, cooked bacon, for garnish

  • 1

    cherry (maraschino or brandied), for garnish

  • 1

    twist orange rind, for garnish

  • BACON-INFUSED BOURBON:

  • 2

    ounce bacon fat

  • 1 1/2

    cups bourbon

Directions

Swirl bitters in a chilled martini glass. Fill a cocktail shaker with large ice cubes and add the bourbon and vermouths. Shake vigorously, then strain the cocktail into the prepared martini glass. Cut bacon into small squares. Garnish with a skewered cherry, orange rind and bacon pieces. Serve immediately. Bacon-Infused Bourbon: To clarify the bacon fat, melt fat and strain into a bowl. Add 4 ounces boiling water. Stir well and leave until melted fat has set into a cake above the water. Remove cake, scraping off any sediment from the bottom, then melt again. Combine bourbon and bacon fat in a quart-size jar. Seal with a tightly fitting lid and shake vigorously. Leave the bourbon to infuse at room temperature for 5-8 hours. Put the jar in the freezer and freeze until all of the bacon fat has solidified at the surface of the bourbon, about 1 hour. Scoop off and discard the bacon fat and strain the bourbon through a fine mesh sieve lined with 2 coffee filters. Extra bacon-infused bourbon can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, or in the refrigerator for up to 6 months. Note: This technique can be used to add a bacon scent to many different liquids or liquors.
